From the publisher

'Caulfield provides much needed sanity in a world of claims run amok . . . I devoured it.' DANIEL LEVITIN, author of The Organized Mind 'Caulfield wittily breaks down everyday dilemmas that might frazzle you . . . Relax encourages you to make decisions informed by evidence, in the hope that you might stop overthinking them.' PANDORA SYKES, THE TIMES 'A handbook that is informed as well as wise.' OBSERVER (Nonfiction to look out for in 2021) A surprising, liberating and scientifically informed guide to overcoming the anxiety that permeates modern life. Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? Do I really have to floss? Are office meetings actually worth the time they take up? Am I spending enough time with my children? Should I worry about binge-watching TV? What time should I go to bed? We make, and worry about, a thousand big and little decisions during our waking hours. Too often these decisions are dictated by concerns or beliefs about our world that simply aren't true. With precision and wit, award-winning public health expert Timothy Caulfield analyses the innumerable cultural, social and psychological forces that shape these misperceptions. Caulfield provides a scientifically informed way out of this mess - Relax will do exactly what the title suggests and help put your mind at ease.
